Likened to a split personality, they knock you out with one hand while picking you up with the other, like watching a storm flatten a building, with anger and fury one minute, then seeing the sun break through the next. From chaotic to calm in the beat of a drum. A lethal combination of heavy, moody, hard driven, beat laden funk rock and hip-hop and soaring, warming, uplifting soul with raunchy blues.

Mix in a heavy Sly and the family stone 70′s funk influence, Zeppelin / Black Crowes Style drive, soaring cinematic strings and powerful harmonies weaved together by Producer Alexander Johnston using his unique production styles and wall of sound and delivered by Singer/brother J, whose gravel driven, velvet tinged, soul soaked voice scales effortlessly through the range of life’s emotions.
They are selling out venues, playing to capacity crowds and sending them home happy with a tight, explosive live show and have gained the reputation globally as one of the best new bands around. Managed by Charles Carlini and In Touch Entertainment in New York whose artists include world famous oscar winning composer Ennio Morricone, Eumir Deodato and Keith Emerson, they have set up a base there and in the last 18 months the band took Hollywood by storm with US Record company meetings and possible Film scores being discussed.

Already and influence on their peers and having Hollywood actors and film producers as fans, averaging 200 plays a day on Myspace, over 20,000 in 5 months and having to tour the UK and US fully to satisfy demand.
Mamma Freedom are already drawing rave reviews and have a fan base worldwide due to the success of mammafreedom.com. Mamma Freedom will be touring the USA and UK in 2009 .
